* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Controversy has slightly sapped their popularity in America (although they still go diamond in the U.S.). However overseas they're still fairly huge and making up for the slight decline in sales in America in countries like the U.K. France, and Russia where they constantly sell out massive arenas. But in Asia they're ''GINORMOUS!!''. Specifically in Japan where their popularity is only matched by XJapan. So popular in fact they allegedly get special political/legal treatment.
** Likely because back in the mid 90's the seed was sown because they appeared on several Japanese Anime OST working with Yoko Kanno. Building a cult following in the process. Then three collaborations with XJapan in the late 90's and early 00's blew them up in Asia.

*ExploitedTrope: SexSells, and ButNotTooBlack to a lesser extent. Some members were uncomfortable with the latter. Both of the tropes that that they exploited have their own hang ups, But the latter has ''A LOT'' of baggage which made some band members uncomfortable.



** There's also a weird minor inter-fandom rivalry amongst the fan base of Outlaw Starr. The band has several Tumblr blogs. The Main one is The Outlaw Starr, but the other is The Outlaw Lifestyle a gritty NSFW candid look at the band, the other is The Outlaw Glamour, another NSFW blog that's alot more glamorous & glitzy and focuses on the bands excesses like fashion, jewelry, partying, cars, cosmetics, luxury etc. When it comes to the latter 2 blogs Fans tend to argue over which blog is better. The blogs tend to cater to 2 different interests. The Glam blog also tends to have more female followers.

** In the beginning scorpion had a sexy pseudo Goth/Hip-Hop appearance. Looking like [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette Fairuza Balk]] from Film/TheCraft (make up and all) but with shades of the color red (and glossy red lipstick) to highlight all the black, or vice versa, and Hip-Hop undertones. By the Early 2000's It was a Semi-Punk Rock colorful Alt/Model style, concurrently with the style of tight tops, and tight lowrise jeans. And eventually to a more toned down demure, regal, chic type thing, [WomanInWhite wearing mostly white]] in the 2010's. Only thing that stayed the same across her different fashion styles was how sexy and risque her style was, and the glossy red lipstick & nail polish. Same with the other band members, Only the risque sex appeal stayed for better or for worse.

** On the other hand the influences can also be good, like learning from each other as artists.

** On the other hand the influences can also be good, like learning from each other as artists. And sharing business ventures.

* ToxicFriendInfluence: The band admitted that they are this to each other. Saying that their bond became very strong yet kinda unhealthy at the same time in a incestuous type of way.

Added DiffLines:

*SoBeautifulItsACurse: A lot of negative criticism towards the Outlaws seems to have roots in this trope. Basically detractors downplaying their musicianship and intelligence because of their looks (and probably race, and gender). Others say they're partly to blame with their self indulgent over the top Fan service overload image. Also Being made up of more than half of ButNotTooBlack women probably ties into this too. But that's a different can of worms.

* Outlaw Starr (1995)

to:

* Outlaw Starr (1995)(1995) Re-released for it's 20th anniversary in 2015.



** Eclipse (2015) A album made up of polished up vault material to tide fans over during the hiatus. Fans were split over it [[note]]Mostly over the reserve drummer Diamond Back. She's an exceptional technical drummer, but not as flashy as the twins. The other reserved drummers get this criticism too. But sense Renay is new she gets it the hardest.[[/note]] but nobody flat out hate it.

* TrainingFromHell: See bad ass above

to:

* TrainingFromHell: See bad ass aboveThe band decided to stay healthy by working out together to stay in shape and promote good health to their young fans. However scorpion thought it would be more interesting if they hired drill Sergeants, special forces trainers, martial arts teachers, and gun trainers for the training/teaching. The band picked up alot of skills over the past 10+ years.
